I'm such a geek. Proof...

Even my favorite movies are rarely watched more than once. Honestly. And I haven't succumbed to the numerous-viewing-means-great-movie practice since the early '90s with movies such as Forrest Gump, Braveheart and in junior high, Rain Man - none of which I have seen within recent years. But I've seen Napoleon Dynamite some six times since I first discovered it (much like everybody else, Johnny Latecomers who waited until after it was released on DVD) and can pretty much recite the whole thing (I have the hardest time memorizing short passages of scripture). I'll save us all the embarrassment of doing so now (OK, I did say "pretty much," but at least I didn't say "basically.")

The First Regular Session of the Fifty-eighth Legislature of the State of Idaho, however, still has something more to say about it, through their Ways and Means Committee as seen in this bill, of which I shall copy a couple selections:

  WHEREAS,  the  friendship  between  Napoleon  and  Pedro   has   furthered multiethnic relationships; and
WHEREAS, Uncle Rico's football skills are a testament to Idaho athletics;
WHEREAS, Kip's relationship with LaFawnduh is a tribute to e-commerce and
Idaho's technology-driven industry; and
WHEREAS, Napoleon's tetherball dexterity emphasizes the importance of
physical education in Idaho public schools; and
WHEREAS, Tina the llama, the chickens with large talons, the 4-H milk
cows, and the Honeymoon Stallion showcase Idaho's animal husbandry; and
WHEREAS, any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the
Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent
resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" and run the risk of having the "Worst Day of
Their Lives!"
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the First Regular Session
of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Legislature, the House of Representatives and the
Senate concurring therein, that we commend Jared and Jerusha Hess and the City
of Preston for showcasing the positive aspects of Idaho's youth, rural culture, education system, athletics, economic prosperity and diversity...

It goes on, of course.
If this is part of a hoax, it's a great one. It looks fairly authentic and extremely tongue-in-cheek, which I enjoy from the mouths of politicians. (ND as subversive politics. Hey, now that's something!)
